A.A. Degree Pathways for English

An Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree helps students seamlessly transition into a bachelor's degree program at one of Florida's four-year institutions.

Students can complete the common prerequisite courses for an upper-division English major as part of their general A.A. degree program. After graduating from Seminole State, they can continue their studies at a state college or university with junior standing.

Seminole State offers prerequisite courses for the following English majors:

The English Department offers a variety of stimulating programs, and its faculty members provide an encouraging environment for future writers, novelists and poets. Tuesday Voices, an open-microphone poetry forum, sponsored by the English Department and the Gwendolyn Brooks Writers' Association of Florida Inc., meets on selected Tuesdays, once per month, during the Fall and Spring semesters. All sessions are held on the Sanford/Lake Mary campus. Dates can be found on the Tuesday Voices page.

For students, the English Department sponsors the Veritas Flash Fiction Competition and the Stephen Caldwell Wright Poetry Awards. Winners are awarded cash and scholarship prizes. More information can be found on the Writing Contests page.
